PS - I went for a moment to German part of skyscrapercity.com about Berlin and it seems like they have same problem as here - lot of tall buildings enthusiasts with great expectations and ideas - and pro-historical, anti-tall planners and regulations.
It's true Berlin is pretty low rise compared with other major capitals but what they do within those confines is so inspiring there doesn't feel like such a need to build up. I think its a pretty good example of if you're going to stay low-mid rise at least make them impressive.

I'd like to think that the "landmark" approach might eventually see more high-rise grow out of those "tall" structures in time to create a polycentric Dublin that doesn't have one CBD with tall buildings but rather several high-rise CBD's.

Don't know what all the moaning on cladding was about. Drove by the other day and it looked good to me from across the river, exactly like the renders in fact.

Goes to show don't judge cladding until there is a significant amount of it in place and actually finished.

Oops, I did indeed mean Frankfurt.

The Docklands is a block system though, well connected to public transport and perfect for a cluster of high rises.

'From a distance'

Up close it looks shit. Let's rejoice though!
